Generic methods that leverage the generic parameters to specify the types of expressions/lambdas received as parameters, typically work great (i.e. fluent APIs that exist everywhere) and infer the types of the lambdas and provide great intellisense.

This stops working completely when the generic method has optional parameters, though, as we just discovered :(

Hi, DanielKzu. Thanks for letting us know about this. While we do not currently have plans to address this issue in the next release of Visual Studio, we do plan to fix it in Roslyn, which is our long-lead effort to rebuild the C# and VB editing experiences from the ground up. When Roslyn eventually becomes part of Visual Studio, you should see this issue corrected. We have not determined when that will be, but it is on our roadmap.
